Chuka Umunna denied the existence of anti-semitism and suggested IHRA clarifications

How times change, or is it career ambition?

I have not seen one incident of antisemitism in almost 20 years of activism within my local Labour Party.”

This is not the only time Chuka has changed his mind to suit his career however, as back in 2016 he part of the group that prepared the Home Affairs Committee report, and recommended clarifications to the IHRA definition of anti-semitism.
